In brief: No

Calcified granulomas are a sign of prior TB or a fungal infection called histoplasmosis.
They are a common finding and are not serious.

In brief: No

It is evidence of a prior infection.
In other words, it's a scar. It is not serious and does not require treatment. When it is not calcified, we follow them with repeat ct scans over 2 years.
